    I've picked up that it's the latest thing for conspiranoids to drool about, not sure what it's based on beyond somewhat cryptic messages that r/w loons read things into, like a cross between Wikileaks and Nostradamus perhaps.

    I've not looked much into the phenomena myself, what it tells us or any ramifications.

    this is one explanatory link, though I can't speak for its veracity or indeed bias.

    The Storm Is the New Pizzagate — Only Worse

    I thought I'd ask here instead, so thanks in advance for insights.

    Why does it have to be based on anything? Pizzagate was entirely a fabrication of paranoid right-wingers.

    You supporting this one taffboy or just looking to innocently bring it to peoples attention? Why on earth would you post something that asks if people have heard about this rad new thing that you personally know nothing about and can't be arsed to look up?

    I certainly dont support it. It looks fucking laughable from what I can tell. I have looked it up, just not a great deal.

    it's the most recent rightwing bullshit attempt to keep the momentum.
    (it's also being pushed by certain parties at the irish website broadsheet.)

    Didn't think the claim in that article it followed the plot of Q seemed right.

    Qanon was a 1960s drug intended to help people stop drinking but was found to be ineffective and utterly useless.

    This was covered a few weeks ago, in The Guardian I think. It concluded it was a meta hoax churned out by the usual 4chan trolls who wanted to link together lots of existing stories.

    Q, as any fule knows is the 17th letter of the alphabet, 17 being a prime number and the only prime that it is the sum of previous prime numbers (2,3,5,7), all other prime numbers thereafter when added give an even number, 17 of course is odd, and as Plutarch pointed out "utterly abominate". As a roman numeral it is XVII, the obvious anagram of VIXI, latin for I Lived...ergo death. I think this should, even for the uninitiated, fully clarify things.

    Ridiculous.

    A = 1st letter of alphabet
    G = 7th letter of alphabet

    A.G = Attorney General ->>>> Jeff Sessions.

    Sessions is Q.
